This year, it's Top 10 New Librarians 2007. There are a few differences between the new contest and the old one:
- Last year, it was for under-30s. This year, it's people who have been working in public libraries for no more than three years. I could enter!
- Last year, the judging panel was made up of various worthies from MLA, TRA, SCL, and even M&B. This year, you get to be judged by last year's winners. That's basically me and my friends...
- The name, obviously. I suppose you can only do Young Librarians of the Future once.
If you've been working in public libraries for less than three years, and you (or your colleagues/bosses/whoever) think you've got what it takes, you should enter.
